I have twins -a boy and girl, Ava and Adam (Just turned 3 years old). This past week Adam not only has no interest in nuring, but when Ava tries to nurse he gets really upset. I was nursing Ava today and Adam ran over and yelled "no Ava! no milk! Mommy has no milk for you!" He was freaking out. Ava stopped nursing and they started talking to each other in their twin language. Ive tried to talk to Adam about this and he just says that they don't want my milk anymore. Im extremely confused.

***im going to be crossposting this in BF beyond infancy and moms with multiples***

MotherEden, i wish i had some good advice for you. i have none. but i do have a

i think it's wonderful you have 3 yo twins nursing!

i do know my kids argue for the "more Milk" side. i take that as a cue to go drink a large glass of water. i love water, but nursing more than one it's easy to get dehydrated (i can get dehydrated even in an hour). seems like nursing gets more sensitive or they fight when the supply is effected.
maybe you are getting a little deydrated and it's reflected in your milk supply and Adam is noticing this. it's worth a shot.
